After serving 20 out of 24 years in the Armed Forces as a Jungle Warfare/Survival Expert, I can definitively say; this is one of the best machetes I have ever owned. After grinding the proper bevel on the edge, this thing holds it's edge for a very long time, being fairly easy to resharpen. The saw-back works great after you file the black coating away. I highly recommend this machete to anyone looking for a heavy duty blade intended for a lot of hard work.
I Bought one of these Rambo Machetes about a year ago and I gotta say It really impressed me. I Had LOW expectations for this knife because It was a "movie knife"....But as soon As I opened the box and held it in my hand, I Knew this was no flimsy movie knife! I Made a few videos on youtube slicing though milk jugs and hacking through 2x6's. Some sharpening is required but if you have a bench grinder and a sharpening stone it won't even be an issue (or you can take it to most any hardware store for $10 and they'll sharpen it for you). I bought 8 of these things, great gift for any outdoors guys.
Amazing blade. Thin and lightweight yet very durable as the bigger machetes. Brought this camping and was hacking away at some brush and tree limbs and it shows no wear. Very low cost for tang steel. Also the sheath is very nice and comes with a loop for a belt.
I don't know what words to use to describe the awesomeness of this incredible machete! All I can say is the photos cannot prepare you for the moment you open the box! IT'S GIGANTIC! IT'S VERY WELL MADE! IT'S HEAVY! IT'S LEATHER SHEATH IS BEAUTIFUL! When people say it brings a smile to your face to hold it....they REALLY MEAN IT! EVERY person I show it to has the same response: their mouth drops open, their eyes bug out, they say "WOW!" then they smile ear to ear! I don't usually write reviews but this blade deserves a standing ovation lol...WELL DONE GIL HIBBEN!
Okay I saw this amazing machete on budk and I thought i'm getting allot of machetes so what will 15 dollars do. So I wasn't really giving this one to much thought but d**n this thing is amazingly beautiful its gut hook is scary and I don't know why no one else has written any reviews about it. Trust me its kinda small for my taste but it couldn't have been made better thank you thank you budk they should put it on their catalog on the front page.
